No he meant coolant filter was first on the list of mods, than Fumoto Valve. I Agree 100 percent

The only downside is you lose the fixed magnet attached to your oem plug...just purchase a small magnet and stick it next to the fumoto...remember to pull it prior to draining.

Well, Gale Hawkins gets the old thread resurrection award for the month. This thread was stagnant and five years old until yesterday.

Is there any cash associated with that award.

My bad that I used the SEARCH feature before posting.

Hahahaha!! I wish there was some cash involved! Just goofing with you. It's a great thread. Nothing wrong with resurrecting these from time to time.

Just got my Fumoto valve in! Woohoo!! Can't wait 'til Saturday: i'll be doing my first service on my truck. First to the dealer to do an FICM and Negative Battery cable update (i'll pick up a filter then), then home for some fresh Rotell 5w40 and my new Fumoto valve....

I use a 5 gallon spackle bucket to drain the oil on an '06 4x4 with stock 20" tires. The truck is high enough where I can get it under the plug with room to spare. Fills the bucket a few inches from the top. Put the lid on tight and dump at our town recycling (free). Then save for next change.

Couldn't agree more... Thought about this topic back in 05 when I purchased my truck and concluded that the magnet on the drain plug was there for a reason. It work's like a filter.

Troy if you are finding metal in your oil pan after break-in you may have a major repair coming I have been told.

I love the Fumoto valve and dieselsite.com coolant filter.

(Bought both items from dieselsite.com)

I use a large oil drain pan from Walmart (holds 18 - 20 quarts) - I can't remember. When done, I pour the old oil back into the empty gallon containers I bought my new oil in. I always keep a few old milk jugs or window washer fluid jugs around so I only have to fill each jus 3/4 full.

I run my truck until up to temp (all gauges). This way I know the oil is very fluid, warm and any particles that may be present are suspended. I do oil analysis every few oil changes and have NEVER worried about not having a magnet in/on my oil drain plug. If you have metal... then you have a problem with your motor or are not using a quality Racor made OEM oil filter.

I use the Fumoto valve without the nipple as using a hose just seemed like to much work and I did not like the "nipple" hanging down.

Enjoy.... it makes changing the oil on your truck a breeze (and cleaner). As well... you'll never have to worry about a stripped oil drain plug or worn out drain plug gasket.

Enjoy....

No metal particles on my drain plug. I just feel that some wear metals that are floating in the oil that are in the Parts Per Million content that a magnet will help reduce these metals from the oil. And by the way you won't see these PPM particles on the magnet.

This magnet comes on the engines for a reason. This is the first vehicle I've owned that had a magnetic drain plug.
